SLR's are monsters, love that car. Hopefully the SLC is a strong replacement.

Wow! 306kmh : 190mph with the top down
The most I have done in a modified Ford Mustang is 164mph and on a modified Yamaha R1 motorcycle is 182mph.
I miss the experience, what a R-U-S-H !!!

Judging by todays economy and markets, its better facing your luck on the lotto and the slot machines at vegas for the jackpot.

At the end he says: "I suppose I should slow down before I run into some Ohio State troopers. They frown upon this sort of thing."
